Bang goes my roman numeral theory I've just found an 'E' on ebay

An "e" or an "E"?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

A token apparently  for the Bussophone, the very first Jukebox machine.

The Bussophone was copyrighted in 1923 by Bussoz of Paris, France. Less than 10 units are known to exist.

Thanks for that Malcolm.
I've seen an earlier looking piece on delcampe.
I didn't realise Wurlitzer bought the rights to his mechanism in 1932 or perhaps that was 1928?

Another fascinating trip  8)

I think that settles the case for a D, rather than an inverse a.

Another, albeit anonymous, aluminium '2' with the triangle mintmark of Cartaux Freres.

For some time we have puzzled over the logo above FC ? This one is the most distinct yet, but unfortunately it has a scratch through the triangle.

Have a look at  my tokens and my banknotes.

Have we :-\  Using advanced reconstruction sware I invented today I was able to get this image.
It's an upside down tree  >:D Or an upside down sphinxes head?  ;D
Or even better Janus upside down - this I like!  8)  The brothers heads combined  :o

A screw press? Took this picture in Segovia. Disregard the lower part.

Not all coin presses are so rounded in shape. Here are the coin presses used in the Khalifa's house at Omdurman (Sudan).

That is a very nice token for Le Parisien, a slot machine copyrighted in 1912 by Blanc & Lescure of Paris, France. Most envious!

I am still hoping to find a mintmark that is clear enough to magnify.
